Once you have your bleach and paints all ready to do...spray some bleach on your t-shirt. Just make some blotchy circles, don't cover the whole shirt with bleach though. You want a lot of black space too or it'll look too crowded once you put the paint on. Give your bleach some time to dry. I waited about 5 - 10 minutes.
TIP: If you are doing BOTH sides of your shirt, then I highly recommend you start with the back of your shirt first. It's a good way to practice. Both sides of your shirt won't look the same no matter how hard you try. One side will always end up looking better. And usually it's the second time around that looks best.
I'm starting with the back of my shirt.
Now start splashing, dripping and smudging your fabric paint. You might want to use a sponge or something similar (paper towel?) but I used my hands. I even painted my hands a few times and just rubbed them onto my shirt.
Start with the lighter colours and work your way to the darker ones. I started out using the white paint. I gave the paint some time to dry (about 10 minutes) before moving on to the next colour.
After the white layer I then did a yellow pass, followed by blue and purple. Build the coloured areas! Make sure they are close together and overlapped. (It gives it a nice effect.)
Then I finished it all off with a layer of white 'stars' using your paint brush.
TIP: You can also use an old toothbrush for the white 'stars'. Dip the toothbrush into your paint and use your finger to 'flick' the paint onto your shirt.
